 The BMW Art Journey is a new global art initiative by BMW and Art Basel offering artists an opportunity to undertake a journey of creative discovery. Like a mobile studio, the BMW Art Journey can take an artist almost anywhere in the world – to undertake research, make contacts, and envision and create new work.

Artists that are showing in Art Basel's sectors for emerging-artists in Miami Beach and Hong Kong are eligible for the BMW Art Journey. Starting 2015, it will be awarded twice a year to one artist at each location. Two international expert juries, one for Hong Kong and one for Miami Beach, will select a shortlist of three artists per sector and will invite them to submit proposals for a journey. One artist from each shortlist will get the chance to undertake the BMW Art Journey. The selected artist from the Discoveries sector of Art Basel's show in Hong Kong, which is taking place in March 2015, will be announced in the summer of 2015. The selected artist from the Positions sector of Art Basel in Miami Beach will be announced in early 2016.

The jury members include Richard Armstrong (Director Guggenheim Museum, New York), Juan Gaítan (curator based in Mexico City), Massimiliano Gioni (Artistic Director New Museum, New York City), Gabriele Horn (Director KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin), Claire Hsu (Director Asia Art Archive, Hong Kong), Matthias Mühling (Director Lenbachhaus, Munich) and Victoria Noorthoorn (Director, Museu de Arte Moderna, Buenos Aires).

The journeys will be documented in close dialogue with the artists and published on this website with regular updates.
